Join me on October 5 in Champagne for a visit to Champagne GOSSET
We will assemble on the quai at la Gare de L'Est for a one hour journey to Epernay. Once we have arrived in Epernay it is just a short drive along the Avenue de Champagne, home to Pol Roger, Moet & Chandon, Perrier-Jouet and many other internationally known brands, before arriving at our destination.
Founded in 1584 Maison Gosset is the oldest producer of Champagne. Itwas acquired in 1993 by the Cointreau family of Cognac Frapin who has spared no cost in their mission to produce a high quality wine deserving of its reputation.
We will be welcome by Hospitality Manager Nathalie DuFour who will explain the history of the house, followed by a visit to the winery and caves. After un coupe de Prestige Gosset celebris 2007 we will be served a four course lunch featuring 3 different champagnes.
A champagne composed of 57% Chardonnay and 43% Pinot Noir. Grapes from the finest terroirs of the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims. Vinified and aged in stainless steel vats, malolactic fermentation is blocked, everything is done to preserve the naturally fruity aromas and the aging potential of this cuvée.

A Premier Cru brut Champagne, made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes and vines from around fifteen villages in the Côte des Blancs.
Distinguished from the other cuvées of the Gosset range by its prolonged maturation time. Preserved in the cellars of the Gosset house, this champagne has thus benefited from a long rest in the bottle for a minimum of 12 years on the lees.
it evolves with notes of berry fruits and is distinguished by a dressy marriage between freshness and maturity. Very nice balance between Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grape varieties. A benchmark champagne for lovers of great rosé champagnes!
Before grabbing our train back to Paris we will visit the Musée d'Epernay in the former Chateau Perrier
